One week after election day, Decision Desk called North Carolina in favor of President Trump and incumbent GOP Senator Thom Tillis. Election projectors were awaiting on mail-in and military ballots to make the final call, though President Trump held a significant lead throughout the week following election day.

Sen. Tillis claimed victory last week over Democrat challenger Cal Cunningham, with a substantial lead that Cunningham was unlikely to overtake. 

The Trump campaign is requesting recounts in swing states, including Georgia, while the campaign fights allegations of voter fraud in court.
